Center for Engaged Learning Scholar - Call for Applications
The Center for Engaged Learning invites applications for the 2018-20 Center for Engaged Learning (CEL) Scholar, a position which will begin in June 2018 and continue through May 2020.
The Center for Engaged Learning invites applications for the 2018-20 Center for Engaged Learning (CEL) Scholar, a position which will begin in June 2018 and continue through May 2020. A new CEL Scholar is named each year, resulting in two rotating CEL Scholar positions. The 2017-19 CEL Scholar is Ketevan Kupatadze, senior lecturer in Spanish in the Department of World Languages and Cultures. Her posts on Student-Faculty Partnerships are available on the Center’s blog.
During a two-year appointment, CEL Scholars will be awarded time and support to develop expertise in a specific aspect of engaged learning and will create resources on that topic to be shared through CEL’s website and in other scholarly venues. The CEL Scholar position is an opportunity for an Elon faculty member to develop and deepen a professional development trajectory that includes scholarly activity on a high-impact practice or other engaged learning topic, in addition to contributing to the Center’s resources, which reach an international audience.
As part of the application process, CEL Scholars will select a Center-identified topic (from the list in the formal call for applications, attached) or another engaged learning topic negotiated with the Center’s Director prior to submitting an application. The topics listed represent current, identifiable gaps in international research on engaged learning and often coincide with Elon-based initiatives for engaged learning practices; therefore, the list of topics is dynamic, responsive to shifts in the field, and updated for each application cycle.
Applicants for the 2018-20 CEL Scholar position are asked to select one of the following topics:
- Internships as high-impact practice;
- Work-study as high-impact practice;
- Diversity and inclusion across high-impact practices;
- Diversity and inclusion as high-impact practice; or
- First-year seminars as high-impact practice.
The 2018-20 CEL Scholar will receive one course reassignment/year and a summer stipend equivalent to FR&D’s summer fellowship for each of two consecutive summers (2018 and 2019) to support focused work on the CEL Scholar’s topic, as well as a $3,000/year draw account to be spent on CEL-related professional expenses and activities. Applicants must be permanent, full-time teaching faculty at Elon.
Applications must be received by Nov. 1 to receive full consideration.
